For those using Cinch-Jones connectors and other connectors that seem 
to develop intermittency problems over time - I have had very good 
luck with the family of conductivity improvement chemicals made by 
CAIG Laboratories.  For example, my rotators began to act flakey 
because of some oxidation on the Jones plugs.  I put some CAIG 
Progold GL on the male contacts, plugged and unplugged the connectors 
a few times, and everything has been fine for years.  The chemicals 
themselves are non-conductive, so they can be used even on very small 
connectors, like microphone connectors or the DIN plugs I use for 
control cables (they are rated at 1 amp, plenty of headroom for relay 
control lines).
